3D printed fridge handle
My parents had been 'struggling' with a broken fridge door handle for a number of years. So after recently purchasing a 3D printer I decided to do something about it.
 
 
The model was built quickly in Rhino with care being taken to produce a form that could be 3D printed without the need for support material.
 
The model was exported as an stl and imported into makerware. The handle was orientated upright for printing as this would provide the most strength with the least chance of breaking when pulled.
 
The file was printed in Faberdashery arctic white PLA plastic with 0.3mm layers and a 15% infill so that it prints quickly while not using too much plastic. After about one hour of printing the handle was simply screwed in place ready to use.
